Get Ready For Aquapalooza 2017
Aquapalooza Grand Lake 2017 organizers have announced that 5th Element band will be the headline performer for Grand Lake’s largest on-the-water concert and raft up, Saturday, July 15.
Presented by 360GrandLake.com, Aquapalooza Grand Lake is expected to attract more than 14,000 boaters and water-lovers to Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees for an afternoon of live music and fun on the water.
“Aquapalooza is a good time. It’s about having fun and enjoying Grand Lake,” said Michelle Prine, owner and president of 360GrandLake.com. “The event has continued to grow each year. People from all over the country will be a part of this national event that has become a popular Grand Lake tradition.”
Thousands of boats will gather in Horse Creek for the eighth annual Aquapalooza Grand Lake event. In addition, hundreds will fill the designated swimming area in front of the 30-by-50 barge stage anchored about 200 feet out from SouthWinds Marina, which is once again hosting the concert and raft up. Held every year on the third Saturday in July, Aquapalooza Grand Lake kicks off this year at 1 p.m., with the fun continuing until 5 p.m. The event is free and open to all ages.
Based out of Tulsa, 5th Element is an upbeat, high-energy, power-packed cover band that blends a variety of genres, from country and classic rock to blues, R&B, pop and a little bit of funk. Lead vocalist Christi King promises an entertaining show with something for everyone.
ParadisePads will line the swim area in front of the stage with a number of colorful, foam water rafts for swimmers to lounge on during the event. ParadisePads also will be giving away some beer pong tables that can also be used as single person floats. Special promotion giveaways will also be thrown from the stage.
Organizers will provide “tons of inflatables, like beach balls and mats” in the swim area. However, Prine suggests swimmers bring their own inflatables and mats to know they’ll be comfortable.
Aquapalooza Grand Lake is accessible by land or by Grand. Boaters won’t be able to miss the stage, the huge tent or the banners flying on many of the thousands of boats. They are invited to anchor in the cove and enjoy the concert.
